Good intro to Articulatory Phonology?

     Johanna Rubba's query put me in mind of a task I'd like some help 
with.  This past semester in my intro linguistics class, I started 
giving basic explanations for phonological phenomena in terms of 
articulatory phonology.  I found that the students seemed to understand 
them and appreciate them, and while I still think it's a good idea for 
students to get some sense of phonemic analysis and generative rules, 
I'd like to incorporate articulatory phonology more formally.

     Can anyone recommend a good short introduction and exercises to 
supplement the phonology chapter in Yule (2010), appropriate for 
undergraduates with no previous coursework in linguistics?

     Thanks in advance.
